Dustin McWhorter, a defensive lineman from Graham, stopped by near the end of UNT’s Friday Night Lights camp last night and let me know that he planned to commit to the Mean Green today.
I got back in touch with him late this afternoon for an update.
McWhorter is still officially on the market.
“I have not committed yet,” McWhorter said. “The coaches said that they needed to verify everything and didn’t want me to commit yet. I have to get them my transcript.”
Despite having to put off making his decision to go to UNT official, McWhorter is still convinced the school is the best fit for him.
“North Texas is where I would like to go,” McWhorter said. “If another bigger, better offer comes I will look at it, but I will probably go to North Texas. Going to be a bigger school could mean less playing time.”
The obvious question is if UNT is slow-playing McWhorter.
Cedar Park defensive end Myles Cheatum was at UNT’s camp and said he was ready to commit to UNT pending approval from his mother.
Denton defensive end Dailon Holmes is also out there. UNT desperately wants to establish a pipeline to the Denton schools, which is going to be tough to do considering most kids want to get the heck out of town (and that goes for any home town) for college.
There is no telling how UNT’s board shapes up, how many defensive linemen the school wants to take or where McWhorter is in terms of UNT’s wish list.
All we know right now is that he wants to come to UNT. I wouldn’t be surprised if that ends up happening. It just didn’t happen today.
